Governor’s race goes to a runoff – maybe

Update:  Absentee ballots are being counted this weekend.  It is possible DeJongh will pick up enough votes to reach the +50% threshold and avoid a runoff.

John DeJongh will contest with Kenneth E. Mapp in a runoff election for Governor Nov. 21.  The match up is required because DeJongh did not get a mrjority of the votes cast.  His tally was 49.33%.  Mapp’s was 27%.  Absentee ballots are, however, waiting to be tallied.  There are 1,689 of them, according to the St. John Source.
